The DJ is the driving force of every dance event. This day has been celebrated as a tribute for those who work in the music industry as DJs. They are so popular in our time, and thanks to them we can party and dance inexhaustibly! The initiative was undertaken in 2002 by the foundations ‘World DJ Fund’ and ‘Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy’. The term DJ refers to a musician who creates, selects and plays music in front of an audience. The tracks he mixes in a DJ set, are remixes or extended versions of original records. DJs were the creators and inspiration for breaking.
There are different types of DJs. The one who works in a radio station, and broadcast new tracks and remixes or Radio DJ. The one who plays in bars, events or discotheques or Club DJ. Bedroom DJ or the one who plays in his own bedroom and broadcast his mixes via video or podcast.
